First (and unless we get a more serious freeze, not the last) bearded
iris bloom this year. Also open - first stalk of many on I. germanica,
growing under the drip line from my unguttered roof, buried in heavy
leaf mulch, and my sister's first seedling - SDB from NEGRA MODELO X ?
Ignore the label that says Perive - I misunderstood the spelling.
Even tho it was below freezing here for over 12 hours, it didn't get
below 29 and doesn't seem to have hurt anything.
